Looking Back... In an effort to transfer my book journal entries over to this blog, I'm going to attempt to post (in chronological order) an entry every Friday. I may or may not add extra commentary to what I jotted down in these journals.
Chicken Soup for the Soul by Jack Canfield and Mark Victor Hansen
Finished in January 1996
Rating: 3/5 (Good)
Two of America's best-loved inspirational speakers share the very best of their collected stories and favorite tales that have touched the hearts of people everywhere. Canfield and Hansen bring you wit and wisdom, hope and empowerment to buoy you through life's dark moments.
My Original Notes:
Short, 1-3 page reflections or stories on life. Heart-warming. Inspiration. Good, light reading, but not great. Actually, pretty sappy stuff.
My Current Thoughts:
I have no idea why I chose to read this book 20 years ago! Mind you, this was before online book clubs, blogging, Goodreads, etc. I didn't belong to a book club and I hadn't started my career as a bookseller. Stephen King, John Grisham, Sidney Sheldon and, yes, Danielle Steel were my authors of choice. Let's just say I'm forever grateful for all the wonderful book recommendations I've received from fellow book lovers over the past two decades, and I can honestly say I will never read another Chicken Soup book again. Not my cuppa
